An "SNL" star has nothing but love for the comedian after she owns up to bombing, and another female comedian that can relate offers words of wisdom.
Tiffany Haddish had a rough New Year's Eve stand-up set in Miami, but other comedians and performers had her back.
After the "Girls Trip" star made headlines for bombing so hard that her fans walked out of the show, she acknowledged the incident did indeed happen as reported. She shared an article headlined, "Tiffany Haddish Bombs, Drinks with Fans Instead," and tweeted, "Yes this happened. I wish it was better Miami. I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never happened [sic] again."
Teigen wrote, "I bombed last night too and all I had to do was read a prompter and also I lost an eyeball. f--k it we good and you are a queen [sic]." The model and TV personality was of course referring to her own viral NYE moment, when Leslie Jones accidentally poked her in the eye with an umbrella on live television.
Griffin reasoned, "This is the price of fame when you're a comic. I was so lucky that there wasn't a Snapchat/IG when I was starting out on my first big tour. No REAL comic never bombs."
"You are a hilarious, incredible talent," Griffin added, "and I can't wait to see you live! Ignore the haters!"
Video emerged from the show featuring Haddish talking to the audience about how "weird" and "crazy" it was that she was bombing because she had forgotten her material, and whatever she did remember wasn't connecting with those who bought tickets to watch her.
"This is weird for me. Now, this is going to be on TMZ or whatever," she said. And she was right. TMZ posted video on New Year's Day, and reported that the comedian eventually just popped open a bottle of Ciroc and started drinking with the audience.
